|Luck & Ripps - The Catastrophic Connection - Michael Gregoire|
Back in February, Joey Ripps approached me about releasing one of his projects through blocSonic. One of the projects, a collaboration with 13aDLucK produced by Catastrophe, turned out to be quite a strong set. After hearing the drafts Ripps sent, blocSonic was officially down for a release! What you’re about to listen to is a fantastic collection of raw, NYC style, boom-bap hip-hop. It’s packed with smooth soul-drenched beats, classic B-Boy braggadocio and introspective rhymes...

Ladies and gents, allow me to introduce to you the latest member of the blocSonic family, Formula. A producer extraordinaire hailing from London. This here is his premiere solo release and our second original.

Among the names you may know, you’ll also find incredibly talented MCs and vocalists who you may not know...

|netBloc Vol. 18: frais, fresco, frisch, fresh… mmmmmmmmmmm… good - Michael Gregoire|
After taking a much needed month off from releasing, we’re back with another fresh batch of netaudio gems. Even with the month off, it was a bit of a bumpy ride pulling this together. During the process of attempting to acquire permissions and assets, we were unable to finalize on four original tracks and went through two rounds of changes. As is always the case though, this process ends up being beneficial for the release — since the line-up/track order is always scrutinized repeatedly unti...

|Pete Lund - Back From '91 - Pete Lund|
While I was browsing Bandcamp for Creative Commons licensed music to consder for “netBloc Vol. 41: Life, The Universe & Everything” I discovered this great singer-songwriter based out of Buffalo, New York by the name of Pete Lund. He’s recently been using that platform to release a string of singles featuring his heartland/roots rock sound. When I reached out to him to include his song “Time Lines” on the above mentioned compilation, we ended up communicating about him releasing music ...

There was once this funky little UK netlabel named Random Flow that put out a total of 12 releases. It was the first netlabel that I knew of that was solely focused on hip-hop. Among the many gems that they released were CM aka Creative’s 2 volumes of Classic Material. These gems were instant favorites of mine.

|Just Plain Ant - Dig Deep - Just Plain Ant|
It’s always exciting when I come across an artist who delivers an album that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. It’s even more enjoyable when that artist is completely independent. There’s something to be said for music independence in these days of packaged and repackaged mainstream music product. Independent music isn’t held back by labels and expectations to fit a certain mold. When I first heard Ant’s “Fly”, I was very impressed by the fact that it had that classic hip-hop v...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the music will gladly give you their opinion about what “real” hip-hop is...

Ten years ago, almost to the day (October 12th, to be specific), The Impossebulls released their sophomore album, Slave Education. It ended up being the flagship release of the re-launch of Chuck D’s SLAMjamz Records, so it was being released via a new distribution partner. Somehow, someway, the distributor pressed up a significant number of copies of the new album using a master of their first album!? How they got a hold of that master is anybody’s guess...

As Marcus J will attest in this release’s liner notes, they’ve had both good shows and bad, but as this live album ...
